Dance Makers

Updated Feb. 4, 2010 - Special thanks to Jaida Bayn for culling the list and identifying closed or moved creators. I've left the creators on the list and marked them as closed or moved in case anyone is looking for an animation.


HUDDLES Update Area - I have grown up with the Huddles EZ Animator Delux and I think it is great for managing dances. There are other HUDS, but I only know the Abranimations HUDs and they don't compare.



Intan Eksonics - Intan makes the group dance rezzer.


This is the current list of dance and pose animation makers in SL:

Mainstore Sins Anim - No dances here only animated poses. You might find a few you want, but save this for the end of your looking

Cupids poses and animations - If this were three years ago, you would love this place. But it's now. There are a few of the old favorites here, but put this place at the end of your shopping list.

3FX Club Equipment, Dancepoles - This store has some very nice individual and couples dances. They also have good dance poles although expensive.

A&M MOCAP Animation Warehouse - This is a new dance maker that does all MOCAP dances that are good quality. They have monthly group gifts that they don't sell so you have to join the group to get them -- and you only get one per avi.

Abranimations - I love this store. It's huge with lots of weird stuff. The dances are generally older and not great, but the all-important SULTRY DOWN BODY is in the Sexy Dance HUD. Individual, pole and couples dances. Lately Abranaimations has added some MoCap dances.

Akaesha Main Store - This dance store has some unique dances but they don't use motion capture (MOCAP) technology, so look archaic. Individual dances only and not worth a visit.

AKEYO Mainstore - There are not many dances at Akeyo, but they are well made. Individual dances only.

CLOSED Amaggee Dance Animations - This store has only old, poorly made dances. Avoid it.

CLOSED ANA_Mations Main Store - This is mainly a static pose maker with some animated poses and ballet dances that are not MOCAP. Unless you like static poses, skip it.

Animation Warehouse - If you have never been to Animation Warehouse, go. It's a lot of fun.

Animations HUMAN MOTION Animations Store - This location has poorly made dances that are poorly looped. Many are freebies that they package and sell. There are also quite a number of animated poses that might be useful.

Animazoo - Animazoo has a lot of dances. The older dances are jerky, but the newer ones are much better. Individual dances only.

ANOmations Mavericks Main Store - ANOmations'dances are old and not up to today's standards. You might find something you like but don't go here first. Individual dances only.

AV Puli Animations - This creator has just started to use motion capture. The dances are okay but still a little jerky. There is one free anim near the landing point. Individual dances only.

Bits and Bobs Animations - This is the home of some of the most popular couples dances in SL.

BORN Uber Store - The is one dance anim here, skyBORN_fly2, which compliments the freebie fly1 and fly3.

Captain's Creations - If you are in dire need of a bad can can dance, shop here. Otherwise, skip this place.

Carmen's Animation Dance Shop - Carmens makes couples dances only like waltzes. Unfortunately, they are not made with motion capture and are not good quality.

Chavos - You have to look in search for this store since the owner doesn't allow landmarks. Some Gorean animations here, but if your are not into that save the trip.

COUPLE DANCES, POSE AND SEX BALL, Elegant (169, 92, 24) - There are couples dances here but they are not motion capture and not worth a visit.

-----CRAXIMATIONS----- - Not very exciting dances can be found here and they are poorly made. Avoid this place.

Cupid's Poses and Animations - This place makes poorly made couples dances that are not worth the time to look at. The individual dances are old or freebie dances.

Copa Designs
- This is also known as Copa Designs. Individual and poles dances that are not worth a visit.

Raymaker Dance - Another purveyor of bad dances. Avoid it.

DANCE CREATION STUDIO - This is the home of poorly made dances. Avoid it.

Djezebel animation - There are a few pretty old dances here. You might find one to add to your collection, but save this for the end of your search. Individual dances only.

DMC - DarkMoon Creations - DMC is a reseller of dances and they also make loaded Intan dance systems. The prices for dances are below the creators' prices and I don't know why that is ... very strange.

*ERF Furniture Club - This is a seller of old outdated individual dances and lousy dance poles. The couples dances appear to be made from linking avaiable individual dances. Not worth a visit for dances, but there are some animated poses that might be interesting.

Extreme Animations - Extreme makes MOCAP dances and animated poses. The quality is good and it is worth a visit. I particularly like their selection of animated poses ... fun. Individual dances only.

CLOSED FREEBIE WAREHOUSE 5,000+ Totally - If you want a large number of free and poorly made dances, this is the place for you. I don't use poorly made dances ... they are never sexy.

CLOSED Gorean Animations - If you like to mix animated poses into your dances and you are into Gorean, this is a useful place to visit.

Henmations - Henmations has a lot of dances. The dances are well made. There are male and female dances as well as couples dances. Definitely worth a trip.

HJAO - HJAO is a seller of older bad dances. There are some interesting animated poses, so you might want to vist.

CLOSED iANIMATION - Another seller of poorly made older dances. The dances are expensive too. Avoid this place.

Inaka Shop - This is the home of the Happy Walk, which is a fun group dance cleverly done. If you buy it, you can also remove the dances from the copyable box. Some of these are useful in making dance sequences.

Karate Animation - This store sells Karate animations and poses. The animatuion quality is not good, so shop here only if you are desperate. There are a couple of okay Japanese individual folk dances.

Le Cadre - Sensual Designs - Mostly Le Cadre has outdated dances. Some of the Salsa dances you might like. Individual dances only.

LI Animation Ski and Skate - There are quite a few poorly made dances here. It is not worth a stop unless you are really hard up for a ballet dance, then maybe. Individual and couples dances.

LostDog Designs - There are Dance poles here but the dances are not too well crafted. The poles are cheap so if you are on a tight budget consider them. There are individual dances here too, but they are a generation old so save them for the end of your shopping. (Lost Dog moved and they have a sim now.

Lotsa Balls- Bad dances poorly made are here. Avoid them.

M&P Shop: Sweet and sexy animations - M&P has both individual and couples dances. They are not the technology leader so save them for the lower end of your shopping list.

MEDHUE ANIMATIONS - Medhue's dance animations are pretty much out-of-date, but the store is still interesting. Individual dances only.

CLOSED Metaversal Arts - There are some couples dances here. Yuck is the best description I can give them. Avoid this place

Mimikri hot couture - Mimikri makes static poses only.

Ministry of Motion - Ministry has quite a few dances and they are motion capture. They are worth a look. Individual dances with a few couples dances.

MoOnlight Animations - There are dance packs sold here, but the packs contain dances that are very old and way out of date. For the most part these dances should be avoided. Individual dances only.

OWENIMATIONS - Owenimations' dances are now mostly out-of-date. There are still some good ones, but choose carefully. Individual dances only.

Promenade Animations - This small shop has both recycled old anims and their own, but they are generally not well looped. Save this one for last. Individual dances only. MOVED?

Pussycat Island and Owl and Pussycat Mall - Bad individual dances and bad couples dances are in vogue here. Skip it.

Ravanne's - Ravanne's makes dance poles, dance tables and dance chairs. The animations are okay but not MOCAP. You are better off going elsewhere.

Raymation Designs- Raymation has made it into the MOCAP world and is now offering some MOCAP individual dances. You might check them out, but be careful that the quality is good. The couples dances are not ready for prime time yet.

Raymation Designs - This is a second location with the Glamour Girl anims

Rickymations - The individual dances here are poorly made and not worth spending time on. The pole dance is equally bad. The couples dances are bad too. Hmmm, skip this place.

Risque Animations - These are dances made without motion technology and they are generally bad. You might find one or two cute ones here, but save it for the end of your list. Individual dances only.

RokS Club Equipment - If you were caught in a time warp and missed the improvements in dances in the last few years, RokS might excite you. It didn't excite me at all. Individual dances only.

Run Around Sue - This creator makes dances by putting dances in couples pose balls. Usually they are free dances. You could make better ones yourself. Don't waste your time here.

Sexy Jesse's - You can find popular couples dances and 3-way dances here. Jesse also has some old but still nice individual dances.

Sine Wave Island - The most prolific producer of SL dances is Sine Wave. The quality is good too. Take a lot of money when you go. Individal and couples dances are there as well as the best dance poles.

SEmotion Studio -They make female and male dances. The quality is okay but not great. They seem sometimes a little jerky and occasionally feel too fast, but go take a look. Individual dances only.

Spirit...for everything cheer - This shop specializes in cheerleading including cheering animations; unfortunately, the anims are not very good.

Studio 4d Dance Animations - Studio4D has a lot of dances. Their early dances tended to be somewhat similar, but now they are developing quite a diverse set of dances. Definitely high on the list. Individual dances only.

Sylva's animation factory - There are only two individual dances here worth getting, but these were really sexy in the early days of SL.

Tartan Shop - If you love Celtic dancing and you like pre-MOCAP dances, you might find something here. I didn't.

There in spirit - There are not a lot of dances here but they are good quality and a style of its own. There are some couples dances too. Worth a look.

CLOSED OR MOVED Used Animation Warehouse - This store sells dances at a discount. The owner buys them from AVs departing SL at 1/4 price then sells them at 1/2 price. Some are questioning their legality ... use caution.

Vista and Co Center - Vista is best known for its animated poses, but they also make individual dances. It is worth a visit.

CLOSED OR MOVED Ventilations: Animations and Scr - This is the home of the group dances polanaise, sirtaki and bunny hops. The animations are not great but groups like them especially when drunk.

Zaius Creations - This is where the sexydance series is found. These are old individual dances, but you might find a few to add to your HUD.

Please send changes to Cilla Teebrook, Galilla Sinatra, Jaida Bayn or Cheryl Nitely.

Dance Sequence 036 - Medium Boogie & Rockabilly

Dance sequences are useful in your Huddles EZ Animator as a way to dance to a complete song using different dances.


This is a dance to C'est La Vie in the style of the Uma Thurman and John Travolta dance in Pulp Fiction. It works real well for boogies and rockabilly for men and women. It was choreographed by Cheryl Nitely.

I Love Dancing

Hi All xxxx

This is Nottoo Wise with the first post to the SL DANCE QUEEN blog.

When I started in SL, I did not know what to expect. I had never played any type of online "game" before. It didn't take long to get me hooked. One of the biggest hooks was dancing. I fell in love with it.

Over my 2 1/2 years in SL I have spent many hours dancing and thinking about dancing. It has given me great pleasure. The idea for the DANCE QUEEN group was to find a way to link with others who felt as I do about dancing. Creating dances with motion capture technology is beyond my capabilities, so I am not a dance maker. But, finding ways to extend the pleasure of dancing seems to have no limits. This blog is for those who love dancing. Anyone can contribute.

Cheryl Nitely is helping me set up the blog and the technical things that will make it useful for you. We want to do a lot of things here. Some of the ideas are to take the information that I send out to DANCE QUEEN members in Daily Notices and place it in an easily accessible location. This includes information about your Huddles HUD, how to choreograph, freebie dances, dance sequences, dance ratings, dance groups, dance equipment and more.

So turn up the music and let's boogie.

Updated 11/25/09 by Nottoo Wise.

(As of 02/04/2010 - We will be starting Dance Ratings up again in the future. If you have any questions or comments about the process, contact, or Gaililla Sinatra.)

SL has over 1000 dances. With so many choices it is hard to know what to add to your collection and what to reject. Dance Ratings offer a way to identify those dances that experienced and dedicated dancers think are the best. The ratings in this list are based on the suitability of the dance for GENERAL USE rather than a special use like tango or country.

We use a scale of 1 to 10 because most people use this type of scale. 1 is low and 10 is high. Three things are considered in rating a dance:
1. technical quality (3 points)
2. utility (3 points)
3. how well the raters like it (4 points)

Ratings are determined by DANCE QUEEN group members in rating sessions. Here are the results so far. We meet about once per month in dance rating sessions.
